While we celebrate our freedom this month, it’s also a good time to say thank you to those who have helped preserve those freedoms.

Davie County Register of Deeds and Davie County Veterans’ Services are starting a new program called “Thank a Vet.”

Upon a veteran recording his or her DD-214 military discharge form (free) at the Register of Deeds Office, the veteran will receive a photo discount card that entitles him or her to discounts or free items at participating Davie businesses.  Showing the “Thank a Vet” discount card would be a requirement to qualify for any discount or incentive provided.

“This program is a great way to incentivize military personnel to record their DD-214 forms plus it gives your business some countywide free advertisement with the anticipation that the veterans (and their families) will visit your place of business, buy local goods, and use local services,” said Kelly Funderburk, Davie’s register of deeds.

Discounts may be a certain percentage off the total sale, a specific monetary amount off, or some sort of free item to the veteran.  Enrollment will be ongoing; a 30-day notice will be required to withdraw from the program.

If a business is already offering some sort of discount to veterans, they can complete the form and return it to the register of deeds office so their name will appear on the list of participating businesses.

A comprehensive list of participating businesses (with their respective discount or freebie) will be available on the register of deeds’ website, the Davie Veterans’ Services website, the Davie Chamber of Commerce website, and will be handed out in paper form to each veteran upon receiving his or her discount card from the Register of Deeds Office.

If interested in participating, visit or contact Funderburk at the register of deeds office.
